Post I've done a lot of funerals

I've done a lot of funerals for a lot of WW II Vets in the last ten years. Including my brother - in - laws. He was a B-17 pilot in the Pacific.

God Rest His Soul.

Tina - I regret the loss of anyones friend - as fiends are lifetimes of memories. Our family is thinning like tomorrow has arrived. I'm loosing my Uncle a WWII Vet to spinal cancer. He was my hero growing up.

He was someone I looked up to. He was a fine soldier during WWII and 25 year fire fighter what more could a kid ask for.

They are all in the late 70's and 80's now and many have grown weary and are just plain tired. I notice the parades are thinning out where the old soldier's would walk with pride down the streets. You can see the mileage on their faces and everyday issues taking a toll on many.

The hospitals are full of these souls who in one way or another are fighting another battle for their lives once again. We all age and we will all die from one thing or another. I pray for all those who suffer and when I think I've got it tough I know damn well there are others who have it a lot worse. God Bless Those Who've Given So Much For So Little In Return.
